Henry Fingleton Profile Picture 2016A brief history.

Before arriving in Andorra for the first time we ran a seasonal tourism business “Kilvahan Horse-drawn Caravans” and I was also involved in construction. We have since sold the business and I have confined my building to the months I am at home in Ireland.

My passion for skiing is contagious. My wife, oldest son, brother and brother-in-law have all since qualified as ski instructors. We suspect we hold the Irish record for, “most ski instructors in one family”.

I now concentrate on training advanced to expert skiers and those preparing for ski instructor exams.

I have experience in all aspects of ski skill development including; general fitness training, nutrition, equipment and sport psychology.

My passion for skiing.

Seventeen years ago, having had 6 skiing holidays, I admitted that my ski addiction was no longer controllable and so my family and I decamped to Soldeu, Andorra, for a season so I could train to be become a ski instructor. That year, one of the best of my life so far, I completed my CSIA* levels 1 and 2 instructor certification courses, which qualified me to teach skiing in lots of different countries.

The following season we returned to Soldeu where I worked full-time for the ski school.

Since then I have spent each winter in Andorra improving my qualifications to CSIA* level 3, Race Coach 1 & 2 and BASI* level 3 ISIA*.  At present, I am training for CSIA* level 4 and European Speed Test.

Take full advantage.

It is very important to me that everyone who takes part in a Pro Ski Training course feels that they receive the very best possible opportunity to succeed in achieving their goals. Pro Ski Training employ only the very best “hand picked” ISIA* level and race coach qualified training instructors and mentors possible. They are involved in the programme and have been specifically selected for their approachability, professionalism, commitment, experience and qualifications. I am delighted that, by kind permission of Sr. Miquel Casal (Ski School Director),  Pro Ski Training is able to work in close association with the highly regarded Soldeu/El Tarter Ski School, as it has the reputation for being one of the best in the World.

I hope you choose to come and train with us and share our passion for the mountains, the snow and the adrenaline.
